A Play Review

I love free activities in our town.  It is so nice to see the community make an effort to do things for us that don’t cost a lot of money.  Honestly, we can’t afford to do the things that cost a lot of money, so we really take advantage when things are free!

This weekend we were so excited to see our children’s theater do a production of Alice in Wonderland in the park.  We got Hannah in her pajamas, packed snacks and drinks, and headed to the park’s amphitheater.  Let’s just say – it was a disaster!  We were sitting on an anthill (on the amphitheater’s seats); Hannah did not want to sit in the stroller to fall asleep; and then the play started.

This was the absolutel WORST play ever!  The actors did not know their lines; the singing was out of tune; the microphones did not work (and the actors did not enunciate); and no one knew what was going on!  I know it was a children’s theater, but it would have helped to have at least been able to hear what they were saying!  The director was completely oblivious that many people were leaving during the performance.  I know that it was free, but sometimes even free is not worth the effort!

Oh well.  At least we had some time out as a family, and I guess that was really the point anyway.

First of all, I am a child of God. I was blessed to come to know Him as my personal Savior when I was just 5 years old! God has blessed me with a wonderful husband, Jamie, who puts up with all of my crazy ideas; a beautiful daughter, Hannah, who is teaching me how to mother in God's grace; a handsome little boy, Ephraim, who keeps us all laughing; and bossy, sweet-natured Harmony, who is never boring! We are enjoying the ups and downs of being parents and look forward to meeting others who are on the same unpredictable journey of parenthood!
